Review/Notes: Wow this one was quite a bit different from the wine we had last night. It seemed very full in my mouth, dare I say robust. It’s got a big smell, sort of picking up some black cherry, and seems very fruity and not so acidic. I wouldn’t call it crisp. I might call it tangy. This is probably not one of the more nuanced wines I have ever consumed but that’s ok. It doesn’t have to be. If it were on special again, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up a couple more bottles.

The old Spanish gentleman on the label is fun, he reminds me of the Italian gentleman on the label of Birra Moretti and that’s not a bad thing. Though it is probably not moving a lot of stock off the shelves.
